How can you make the Measuring graduated cylinder powerpoint on full screen?

  • I haven't found a way to go full screen, but using Firefox, you can Zoom in to make the important stuff easier for students to see from the back row. I go to 175% and center using the scroll bars. Hope this helps :D Melissa Wolf, 7th grade Science teacher

  • In Chrome you can click on the screen and then hold Ctrl and + to zoom in.

Could you modify this to require the correct significant digits?
